Stuff

(n.) A word used to simplify a detailed subject matter, often for dramatic effect. For example: “I was at a meeting with the PT last week where we discussed Tornado ~” In this context the word ‘stuff’ is always overemphasised, sometimes in a derogatory way. In this example the speaker is actually saying “The topics that I discussed with regards to Tornado GR4 are detailed, wide and far ranging. However, to go into them in any depth at this time would be unnecessary”.
